After less than two yearswork in Guangdong, Wang Weizhong, a Shanxi native, took a further step in his career and was promoted from the Provincial Standing Committee to the vice secretary of the provincial Party committee.
In addition to provincial Party Committee secretary, provincial governor, provincial peoples Congress director, provincial CPPCC chairman and other ministerial posts, provincial Party committee deputy secretary is the highest Deputy post in a province.
Zheng Zhijun noticed that Wang Weizhong belonged to airborne troops.
After the corruption of Shanxi collapse mode in 2014, Wang Weizhong went to Shanxi to work as one of the airborne soldiers. More than two years later, Wang Weizhong went south and became the first Secretary of the Municipal Party Committee of Shenzhen to be airborne directly from other provinces since the founding of the city.
Airborne to Shenzhen after Shanxi firefighting
Wang Weizhong, born in March 1962 in Shuozhou, Shanxi Province, is an alternate member of the 19th Central Committee.
He graduated from the School of Public Administration, Tsinghua University, majoring in management science and engineering, with a postgraduate degree and a Ph.D. in management. He belongs to the airborne local officials of the ministries and commissions.
According to his resume, after graduating from Tsinghua, Wang Weizhong worked in the Ministry of Water Resources and Electricity. He worked in the State Science and Technology Commission and the Ministry of Science and Technology for many years. From April 2010 to September 2014, Wang Weizhong served as vice-minister of the Ministry of Science and Technology and landed in Shanxi by air.
One month before Wang Wei landed in Shanxi, in August 2014, Nie Chunyu, then the Standing Committee and Secretary-General of Shanxi Provincial Committee, fell to the ground. Wang Weizhong should be a fire fighter.
One of the major backgrounds of Wang Weizhongs trip to Shanxi was that the central government should rebuild Shanxis official business after the local collapse and corruption.
On the morning of September 30, 2014, the Shanxi Provincial Committee held an enlarged meeting of the Standing Committee, which announced the decision of the Central Committee on the adjustment and supplementation of the Party and government groups in Shanxi Province. With the approval of the Central Committee, Huang Xiaowei, Wu Zhenglong, Sun Shaoxing, Wang Weizhong and Fu Jianhua were appointed members of the Standing Committee of the Shanxi Provincial Committee.
Five Provincial Standing Committees are re-elected in one day, which is very rare.
Over the past four years, many changes have taken place in the career of these five people:
Huang Xiaowei has been to the All-China Womens Federation this year. She is currently the secretary, vice-chairman and the first Secretary of the Secretariat.
After two years as secretary of the Taiyuan Municipal Committee, Wu Zhenglong was transferred to Nanjing. After several years of training, he became governor of Jiangsu Province in July 2017.
Sun Shao-galang worked in Shanxi for more than two years, returned to the Ministry of Civil Affairs in February 2017, and then to the Ministry of Land and Resources. With the restructuring of the organization, Sun Shao-galang acted as the new Minister of Retired Military Affairs.
Fu Jianhua also worked in Shanxi for two years. He returned to Beijing in September 2016 and is currently Vice Minister of Emergency Management.
Wang Weizhong went south in March 2017 and became the leader of Shenzhen, the frontier of reform and opening up.
The first Secretary of the Municipal Party Committee to be airborne directly from other provinces
Focus on Wang Weizhong.
The importance of Shenzhen does not need to be mentioned by the political knowledgeable gentleman.
It has been 38 years since it was officially recognized as a special economic zone in August 1980. Shenzhen has welcomed 12 secretaries, namely Wu Nansheng, Liang Xiang, Li Hao, Li Youwei, Zhang Gaoli, Huang Liman (female), Li Hongzhong, Liu Yupu, Wang Rong, Ma Xingrui, Xu Qin and Wang Weizhong. (Editors Note: According to the calculation after Shenzhen became a special economic zone in 1980, Zhang Xunfu, Secretary of the Shenzhen Municipal Committee in 1979, was not included.)
Zhang Gaoli served as Deputy Secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Committee and Secretary of the Shenzhen Municipal Committee from 1998 to 2001. After leaving Shenzhen, he served as governor of Shandong Province, Secretary of the provincial Party committee, Secretary of the Tianjin Municipal Committee, Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee, Deputy Prime Minister of the State Council and so on.
Li Hongzhong, the current Secretary of Tianjin Municipal Committee, served as mayor and Secretary of Shenzhen Municipal Committee from 2003 to 2007.
Ma Xingrui, the current governor of Guangdong Province, served as Deputy Secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Committee and Secretary of the Shenzhen Municipal Committee from 2015 to 2016.
Xu Qin, the current governor of Hebei Province, served as the Standing Committee of the Guangdong Provincial Committee, Secretary of the Shenzhen Municipal Committee and mayor from December 2016 to March 2017.
Wang Weizhong is the first Secretary of the municipal Party committee to be airborne directly from other provinces since the founding of Shenzhen. Although many of Shenzhens successive secretaries of the municipal Party committee have long worked in the central or other provinces, when they took office as the Secretary of the Party committee of Shenzhen, they had already experienced other positions in Guangdong Province or Shenzhen.
How is Wang Weizhong doing in Shenzhen? Lets look at a set of data.
In the first half of this year, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen entered the trillion club in Qiqi. This is the first time that the GDP of four first-tier cities in half a year collectively surpassed the trillion mark: Shanghais GDP exceeded 1.5 trillion yuan in the first half of this year; Beijing followed with 1.4 trillion yuan; Shenzhen and Guangzhou ranked third and fourth with 1.1 trillion yuan and 1.07 trillion yuan respectively.
Although the total amount is not the first, Shenzhen is leading the way in terms of growth rate by 8%.
Senior officials also attach great importance to Shenzhen.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of reform and opening-up. In October this year, Xi Jinping visited Guangdong Province. Shenzhen is the third stop of Xi Jinpings Guangdong tour. He said plainly, Once again to Shenzhen, once again to Guangdong, we are here to declare to the world that Chinas reform and opening-up will never stop! In the next 40 years, China will surely have new achievements that will make the world look impressive! uuuuuuuuuuu
You cant walk out of Shenzhen. How can you go to the world?
Speaking of Shenzhen, we have to Tihuawei.
In May 2016, there was an article brushing the screen, a Dont Let Huawei Run caused a great disturbance. Huawei, the pillar of Shenzhens science and technology industry, is planning to relocate to Dongguan on the Shenzhen border, the article said.
When I came to Shenzhen in April last year, Huaweis base in Dongguan Songshan Lake was built, Wang Weizhong said in an interview with Phoenix Satellite TVs Question and Answer Shenzhou in December, Rens leadership of Huawei has really developed very well in recent years. I think some of the statements may be narrow. You said that many large multinational companies, where do you say it is? Actually, Huawei has branches or enterprises in more than 170 countries around the world. Indeed, I have discussed with Ren many times, and I also respect him.
In April 2017, less than a month after taking office as Secretary of the Shenzhen Municipal Committee, Wang Weizhong talked with Ren Zhengfei, President of Huawei, who said that Huaweis headquarters would never leave Shenzhen.
One year later (April this year), the Shenzhen Municipal Government and Huawei signed the cooperation agreement of taking root in Shenzhen and looking forward to the future, and Wang Weizhong Ren Zhengfei witnessed the signing of the agreement.
Wang Weizhong said such a sentence in the above interview:
Huawei has turned out some industries, and also some layout of its industries. Actually, I dont think so much. So Ren always told me that we signed an agreement, how many years will not leave Shenzhen in the future, I said Ren never signed, heart is in everything, heart is not in everything, if the development environment of Shenzhen business environment is not suitable for your development here, I should not leave you. Later, Ren said that I would not leave Shenzhen, so we signed an agreement. We also support Huawei to develop all over the world. I think you should open up. What is reform and opening up? Enterprises need to go out. You cant walk out of Shenzhen. How can you go to the world?
Three people parachuted into Guangdong
Before Wang Weizhong, Ren Xuefeng, Deputy Secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Party Committee, was appointed to Chongqing in October this year.
Ren Xuefeng served as Deputy Secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Committee from February 2017 to October 2018, and served as Secretary of the Guangzhou Municipal Committee from February 2017 to July 2018.
In 2013, Ma Xingrui, the Space Major landed in Guangdong from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology as Deputy Secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Committee, while Zhu Mingguo no longer served as Deputy Secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Committee. In November 2014, Zhu Mingguo fell.
Ma Xingrui served as Deputy Secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Party Committee from 2013 to 2016. He was also Secretary of the Political and Legal Committee and Shenzhen Municipal Committee. In 2016, Ma Xingrui was acting governor of Guangdong Province, and he soon changed his position.
Speaking back to Wang Weizhong.
On the same day as Wang Weizhong, another airborne soldier, Ye Zhenqin, who landed from the Ministry of Agriculture, became a new face of the Standing Committee of the Guangdong Provincial Committee.
Prior to their new performance, Fu Hua, editor-in-chief of the Economic Daily, landed in Guangdong in March this year as a member of the Standing Committee of the Provincial Party Committee and Minister of the Ministry of Propaganda. In July, Zhang Shuofu, Secretary of the Beijing Municipal Party Committee and the Municipal Discipline Commission, landed as a member of the Standing Committee of the Provincial Party Committee and the Secretary of the Guangzhou Municipal Committee.
In the same month of Zhang Shuofus airborne landing, Zeng Zhiquan, the former standing committee of the Guangdong Provincial Committee and former Minister of the United Front Department, fell from power.
After several adjustments, the Standing Committee of the Guangdong Provincial Committee has increased to 11 members.
